Default Phone goes to Gallery after viewing MMS pix?

Hi all. Does anybody know how to fix this issue? It's driving my girl crazy.
She gets a picture MMS, views it, and then hits the 'back' button to go back to her messages. But instead of going back to her messages, it opens the Gallery! WTF? LOL

She says it's been doing it since the most recent update, but I remember her talking about this months ago. So I think it may have been the first update.

Can anyone help with suggestions? She's on the Stock ROM.
Thanks!

Questions should go in the Q&A forum. I would think that somewhere along the way when your gf chose to open a pic in mms...The S4 asked her what app to use and if to use only once.. I suspect this now the default and I'm not sure how to reset the default.

Sorry about the wrong forum. I realized that a few minutes after I posted.

Ahh, good call. Maybe if I go to Manage Apps and clear data in either Gallery or Messages, it'll fix the problem. The question then is will she lose her texts or photos in doing that?

I tried your idea, papstar, but unfortunately it didn't work. Thanks for the suggestion though. I appreciate it.
